It's on the internet; it must be true! I once saw a t-shirt that said, "Wikipedia - you get what you pay for."

I just replaced my rear tires with LRR Michelins that are slightly taller. I'm replacing my fronts within the next week or so.

I hope the tires make a difference for you. The taller LRR Yokohama tires I bought for my Mustang in July haven't made a noticeable difference in fuel economy - yet. They may, after a few more thousands of miles. They seem to be as grippy as the Pirellis they replaced - at a much lower price. No complaints in the performance department.
Winter fuel seems to be here for the next few months. I'm hoping to make it through this Winter without dropping below 31.
Best of luck.

So far they are nice, and see like they have plenty of grip, just like the High Performance Continentals that I had before.
